My home has about 700 sq. ft. of cedar deck and porch that were painted with "porch paint" by the previous owner. When we bought the house 4 years ago we searched for a more durable paint but were unsuccessful and ended up repainting with porch paint, which lasts about a year in the wear paths. When I saw DeckOver I hoped it would be the solution for a long-wearing deck paint and got some to try.
So far I've used it on the steps that get the most wear and a badly spalled concrete landing outside the basement door. I'm going to test these locations for wear resistance for a few months before committing to using DeckOver for all 700 sq. ft. of deck.
I used a 3" brush to apply it. It goes on easily but requires frequent brush reloading to get the required amount applied. When doing the badly worn concrete landing I needed to reload the brush every 6" of surface. I stored the brush in a plastic bag between coats and it was still usable after a couple of weeks.
The instructions say it will fill divots of up to 1/4", but on the concrete it didn't seem to do that well, as shown in the close up photo.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ems01 Worst product I've ever used
We were so impressed with the demo at Home Depot that in 2013 my sister and I both purchased Deck Over and stained our decks. We both spent almost an entire summer on this project. After thoroughly cleaning our decks and letting them dry. We painted over the cracks and between each board with a paint brush as was suggested by the rep and allowed sufficient time for both coats to dry. Both decks look gorgeous for the remainder of that first summer. By spring 2014 the stain on both decks had cracked and started to peel. We could actually peel off the stain with our fingers. We touched up these areas only to have the same thing happen in 2015 and now in 2016. In addition, we were told the deck would be perfect for walking in on bare feet... It is not! This is very discouraging especially when my neighbors used a plain old deck stain and have much better looking decks. We were told the stain would last for many years and I have touched up my deck every year - what a waste of time and money. Several people asked why the deck looks like it does when it was recently stained and what I've used. I tell them but I also warn them it's a lot of money for very poor results. This product should last more than one year. Up to this point I thought Behr products were far better than other brands. After this experience I am not sure I will purchase Behr again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MW Product should be taken off the market!!
Applied Deck over per instructions on can, after 1 year it is pealing and bubbling. It is difficult to put on, very expensive, doesn't cover as advertised.

We applied this product and followed the directions exactly. After two years it needs to be completely redone. There are cracks in almost all of the deck boards (even in areas that are not walked on like railings) and big areas where the finish has come completely off leaving exposed wood. The staff at the local Home Depot store don't even recommend this when you ask them about it. I spent a lot of time and money on this, and now I'll be switching products.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Smitty Here we go again . . . pealing!
This product was highly recommended by the Home Depot Paint Dept. Was told it would last for several years. I followed the preparation directions as stated. I spent days with the process. That was last summer . . . fast forward to 10 months later. it's peeling in many areas of our deck. I never intended having to prep and repaint our deck again this summer. More time and $$$.
I believe we should be refunded at least the cost of the paint!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by EP Waste of money!
Goes on like thick paste. Added 2 coats and already fading within 30 days. Also, purchased the product based on a Promotion for $10 off. Submitted the receipt and all pertinent then get a return postcard stating "no qualified products eligible for rebate based upon sales receipt info provided". So the product lacks quality and they use false advertising??

I used Rustoleum Restore in 2014. It started bubbling up (because of getting wet) within 6 months but we have lived with the chipping and pieces tearing off since then. About a month ago I started scraping it off and then used the Behr Stripper and then the Behr Cleaner and then I sanded it with my belt sander. I put two coats of Sable colored Deck Over on the deck. My question now is I can rub the deck with my bare foot and it leaves a white mark on the deck like someone used an eraser on it. Has anyone experieced this before? It doesn't look the best with the white marks. As far as people saying it was way thick and hard to roll on I did not have a problem with it. My deck looks great before the white marks. It sure covers up the small cracks.
